After reading the description of this tea, I thought for sure I would hate it. I couldn’t fathom how earl grey would blend with fruit. Beautiful blend of flavors. Now I have to decide if I should buy more. Tough decision.

Re-steeped yesterday mornings tea for work today :) Still delicious. This is going to be a good day!

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by 52teas

On the 5th day of Christmas…

I haven’t had a chance to try the 4th day Earl Black yet. Must taste it this afternoon. Kim and I went ahead and had today’s tea this morning.

It was a nice smooth nutmeg/vanilla black tea. I couldn’t really taste pumpkin or cheesecake. Pumpkin pie is a favorite of mine and I was hoping to have a bit of that flavor in it. I can do without cheesecake, so I was happy not to taste it. It is a good flavored black tea, but doesn’t really taste much like its name would suggest.

Received some great news tonight. Felt like celebrating by enjoying a cuppa rooibos while watching the series finale of Gossip Girl.

This was one of the many generous sample I received in my holiday sampler box from Nicole. I LOVE this tea! It doesn’t have the greatest of reviews here on Steepster, but I’d like this to be on my shelf always :)

It is wonderfully honey flavored with a hint of lemon. I like that the honey is the dominant flavor. Honey has always been a favorite of mine. It needs to become the sweetener I use more often with tea. I can barely taste the rooibos, but I think it works as a base. It is calling for a second steeping.

Kim, you need to come over tomorrow night for a cuppa :)


This is actually one of the only rooibos blends I like – maybe because it isn’t very noticeable. It’s very calming to me. A good pre-bedtime tea.


Thank you so much for sharing it with me!!! I’m hoping it puts me to sleep tonight :)

drank Sun and Cloud Mist by 52teas

On the 3rd day of Christmas…

Okay, so my friend Kim and I are a day behind. Hoping to catch up this evening with Earl Black.

At first sip, this reminded me of Adagio Teas Lemon Cloud Rooibos. It has a very similar flavor. I can definitely taste the lemongrass. Green tea is not my favorite, but this was enjoyable. The more I sipped it, the more I could taste the grassy flavor of the green tea.

This tea was calling to me this morning from my tea cabinet. I was in the mood for a sweet dessert tea this morning and this did not fail me. A little sugar and milk…brilliant!! This is taking my Monday morning blues away and helping me focus on the work ahead this week.

While shopping at Elaine’s Tea Shoppe in Toledo, I came across this tea and loved the idea of earl grey and jasmine – two of my favorite teas.

It is enjoyable. I don’t want to rate it just yet. I feel like I need to have another shot at it to truly know how I feel.

drank Breakfast Smoothie Honeybush by 52teas

On the 2nd day of Christmas…

This was surprisingly enjoyable. I have to admit that at first smell, I thought for sure I would not like this. I’m not a fan of bananas and that is the main scent of the honeybush.

It tastes much like Juicy Fruit bubble gum.

I’m really enjoying these daily teas and sharing them with a great friend. Looking forward to finding what tomorrow holds.

I love when I find a tea I can enjoy without any additions. Smooth, creamy toffee with the rich, dark, earthy pu-erh – perfect blend of flavors. Each sip promises that this will be a staple on my tea shelf. WOW!!!

Picked this up at Elane’s Tea Shoppe in Toledo. So glad I did. What a delightful way to begin my day :)

drank Cotton Candy Black Tea by 52teas

So glad Steepster is working again this afternoon. Wrote this in the morning:

YAY! The 12 days before Christmas is finally here which means…52Teas 12 Days of Christmas!!!

Did you know that the actual 12 days of Christmas are the 12 days after Christmas that lead to Epiphany? It’s the day we celebrate the arrival of the wise men as well as the baptism of Jesus. Pretty cool.

But anywho, the tea for Day 1 is Cotton Candy black tea :) Cotton Candy is my favorite fair food and can’t get enough of it. My family did Thanksgiving at Golden Coral this year and they now have cotton candy. Sadly, they didn’t make much of it. I joked (maybe) that my whole dinner was going to be cotton candy. This definitely tastes like cotton candy. I added sugar because cotton candy is spun sugar :) YUM! Taking some to my friend Kim this morning. Sharing this tea was my Christmas gift for her. She’s on Steepster now! She’s a beautiful writer so I can’t wait to see what she has to say about the teas she tastes.


I don’t think I could wait till after Christmas to open my teas!

Good job converting another person to Steepster.


Hooray for another Steepsterite!


I don’t think I could wait either :) Although I’m already a day behind. I’m really excited my friend is on Steepster. It’s nice to have someone I actually know in real life to share this with me.

A cup of tea, a blanket, and a book – my 3 favorite things.

Generally my favorite teas tend to be oolong, black, or green.

My tea ratings reflect my feelings about the tea. That’s just how I roll.

My profile picture is of my mom and I. She is my best friend and the person who introduced me to tea and tea cup collecting.
